Dr. Amani specializes in Asset Recovery Law and Anti-money Laundering Law. In his doctoral thesis, for instance, he examined the emerging trends in asset recovery practices in Tanzania, especially, focusing on the use of both legislated and unlegislated processes, namely, amnesties and out of court settlements to recovery criminal assets and the attendant legal implications. Despite his bias in asset recovery and anti-money laundering law, Dr. Amani also teaches Administrative Law, Constitutional Law, Financial Crimes Law, Criminology and Penology, and the Law of Torts.
